Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

As a result of his resignation, Otto Addo is no longer the Ghana Black Stars’ head coach.

The 47-year-old resigned after the senior national football team was humiliated by Uruguay today, December 2.

Ghana lost by two goals to one in a game in which many Ghanaians expected the players to exact revenge on Luis Suarez, who cost Ghana a semi-final spot at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The inexperienced 47-year-old, a former Ghana international born in Germany who played for the Black Stars in their first World Cup finals appearance in 2006, had been a surprise appointment, thrown in between Ghana’s humiliating defeat at the January Africa Cup of Nations finals and their March World Cup qualifying playoff tie against Nigeria.

Although his only previous coaching experience was with Hamburg and Borussia Dortmund youth teams, he was assisted by former Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton as Ghana edged Nigeria for a place in Qatar.

“I said before, it was clear I would stop after the World Cup. At the moment, me and my family see our future in Germany, I like my role at Dortmund,” Addo said after Ghana

Captain Dede Ayew is currently under fire for missing a penalty.

Ghana has been eliminated from the ongoing World Cup in Qatar. They lost to Portugal but beat South Korea before exiting.

South Korea, on the other hand, has advanced to the round of 16 after defeating Portugal today.
